    This review is from: Dell Venue 7 16 GB Tablet (Android) (Personal Computers)

    I just got this tablet so I can’t speak to longevity, etc., but as for first impressions, this is a really great tablet for the price. What I like:
    -Build quality seems excellent – really solid feel.
    -Micro SD slot for expansion is great.
    -Pretty much stock Android (I have used the Samsung version in the past, I found it almost unworkable).
    -Lots of RAM and a fairly fast processor means apps run quickly

    On the negative side, it has cameras, though they are pretty low quality – good enough for Skype, etc., but won’t beat your phone for pictures.

    Overall, I would recommend. I will update after a while if anything goes wrong.

    EDIT 11/7/2013: Just thought I would give an update about the Micro SD card reader, as I was a bit confused about it. On the Dell site, it says it is SDXC compatible, supporting up to 128GB (when they are available), but in other spots it says “a micro SD slot for up to 32GB of additional storage”, which would imply it is not SDXC compatible. Well, tonight I put in a 64GB SDXC card, formatted to FAT32, and all 64GB were available. Copied files from my desktop onto the card, and the Venue was able to read them no problem. So that is a very nice feature if you have a lot of movies, music, etc you want to lug around with this tablet.

    Best tablet out there for $149!, November 4, 2013

    This review is from: Dell Venue 7 16 GB Tablet (Android) (Personal Computers)

    This is a really great tablet. I got it for $149 so I didn’t have my hopes too high with it being this cheap but it’s an excellent tablet. I would say this is by far the best tablet for $149. The build quality seems to be really good, not cheap and creaky like the Hisense Sero 7 Pro from Walmart. The back is mildy grippy like the nexus 7. It’s super light only weighing 314g! It has front and rear cameras that aren’t that great but it’s better than nothing. The tablet comes with Android 4.2.2 and it’s stock Android with only 2 Dell cloud apps that can be disabled anyways so it’s nice and clean. Dell says it’ll get 4.4 KitKit soon. This does have a GPS, and an ambient light sensor for automatic brightness. The micro sd slot works well, I have a 32GB card in it working great. The speaker is on the bottom side to when laying flat the sound isn’t muffled, it gets really loud for a little speaker. The sound quality when you plug headphones in is excellent, blew me a way, the sound is full and rich if you’re listening to a good source. The screen is very bright and sharp, good viewing angles because it’s an IPS display. This plays a bunch of high end games without a hitch. Battery life seems to be pretty good, they claim up to 10 hours. Comes with a nice 10W power adapter and a micro usb cable.

    UPDATE 11/15/2013:
    I’m still liking this tablet overall but I noticed a thing after using it for awhile. The automatic brightness level at night or in a darker room is way too bright, it’s very hard on the eyes and I have to manually turn the brightness down because it’s so bright at night. I have contacted Dell about this and they have forwarded it to the department that handles the software on this tablet so hopefully it’s adjusted in a future update.

    Great Value For The Price, November 25, 2013

    This review is from: Dell Venue 7 16 GB Tablet (Android) (Personal Computers)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine Program (What’s this?)

    Seven inches seems to be the “sweet spot” in size for a tablet that is convenient to carry around and yet large enough to actually use, so I ordered this one to see if it works for me. I find this tablet to be very well designed, with good screen viewing angles and adequate battery life, but to have limited internal speakers.

    Design:

    The tablet is very comfortable to hold and quite compact. The device is designed for portrait mode (the camera is at the top when held that way), although it works fine in landscape, which is my preferred mode. The top has the power button and jack for a standard headset. The left side has volume +/- and the MicroUSB port. The bottom has the speakers in the middle, and the Dell asset tag. The right side has a compartment that opens to reveal the MicroSD card slot and a slot for a MicroSIM card (which is filled in for my WiFi model). The rear is smooth but not slippery.

    Use:
    The device is quite snappy in use, and never got hot even when running benchmarks or movies. The interface is pretty basic, but easy to use, unlike other vendors who put too much stuff on top of Android. I was able to open a lot of programs and switch back and forth between them easily; multitasking is quite good. I was concerned about the Intel Atom based tablet being fast enough, but this one does well (benchmarks below). HTML 5 and YouTube movies worked well and looked fine, but it will not support flash (see below). The screen is not the highest resolution (that would be the Nexus 7 in the Android community), but it is very clear, and will support HD. It can be seen even in bright sunlight, although I think it is really best indoors – it was readable in sunlight but not absolutely bright. The device includes the Android browser and Chrome, plus a minimal suite of included software, mostly Google products such as Mail and Calendar. Overall, I am pleased with the user experience.

    Good:

    + Capable of 4G operation when ordered that way. Mine is the WiFi only model.

    + Support for a Micro SD card. I didn’t test this because in my particular use I don’t need that much storage. The box and Amazon page say it will support up to 64Gb, but the Dell web site says it will support 128Gb SDXC as well.

    + Very good screen angles, left, right, up, down. The resolution is not the highest, but it plays HD videos very well.

    + Battery life is about 8 hours of normal browsing at average screen brightness. I was able to browse for a couple of hours and then watch two full movies before it got below 30%. This was indoors; battery life will be different if the screen is turned all the way up, or automatically goes to maximum when used outside. Nevertheless I think for the size of the device it is good.

    + Performance is good, but not maximum. The device uses the Intel Atom (Z2560) chip running at 1.6 Ghz (the Amazon site says 2 Ghz). I was interested to discover that it is actually a dual core chip running with hyper-threading, rather than actually having 4 physical cores. It rendered a Quadrant benchmark score of 6102. As a comparison, my Snapdragon powered HTC One (also 1.6 Ghz, but four physical cores) achieved 9120 on the same test. However it feels fine in use, and because of the 2Gb of RAM (many tablets still use 1GB), multitasking was great.

    + There is not a lot of “bloatware” on the tablet – it installed pretty “clean”.

    + There is a low resolution front camera for use when video conferencing.

    + Charging is via a standard MicroUSB, which is good, because in the past Dell has opted for non-standard chargers.

    Not-So-Good:

    - The tablet will not display flash content. This means that one cannot watch Amazon streaming movies, or most web cam type shows. I was simply unable to get the Adobe flash player working on this model. It comes with Android 4.2.2, which does not include Flash. There is a work around that I have used before (download Flash from the Adobe website), but that did not work; I finally gave up on trying to get Flash to show up. I subsequently tried it on my HTC One, which is running 4.3, and it doesn’t work there either, so I did not detract any stars. The tablet will display HTML5 just fine.

    - The screen really picks up fingerprints. I didn’t detract for this either, but it will get marked up!

    - There is only a single speaker, at the bottom of the device, so there is no stereo output. Sound is not really that good unless one is using headphones; it is strong but not that clear.

    - The device comes with Pocket Cloud software. In theory, this allows one to access the desktop from the tablet. The Companion software is available for PC or Mac. When I attempted to use it my antivirus warned that there was an attack on a security hole, so I uninstalled it and did not go any further. I’m not sure what the software was attempting,…
